Huge Power (Japanese: ちからもち Muscleman) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation VI and in Generation IX, it is the signature Ability of Marill's evolutionary line.

Effect

In battle

Huge Power doubles the Attack stat of the Pokémon with this Ability.

Because it is an Attack modifier and not a stat stage change, it will double the user's effective Attack stat when using Foul Play or Body Press.

Outside of battle

Huge Power has no effect outside of battle.

In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Huge Power has a one-in-three chance of boosting a physical move by 50% when such an attack is used. The chance of activating appears to be lower in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon.

Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Huge Power is Azumarill's Ability. When the user hits only a single opposing Pokémon with a basic attack, a move, or its Unite Move, the hit is guaranteed to be a critical hit. However, when the user hits two or more opposing Pokémon at once with a basic attack, a move, or its Unite Move, the hits are never critical hits.

Trivia

  • The reason why mostly rabbit-like Pokémon have this Ability may come from an alternate meaning of its Japanese name, "fortifying mochi", which is often associated with the moon rabbit, a popular interpretation of the dark markings on the Moon.
